I have a real issue with a school that does not communicate with a child's non custodial parent. This was after showing up in person at the school to explain the situation. We did not find out our child repeated a grade until after it happened. Clearly the school assumes the custodial parent communicated which she did not. Second what school does not check for lice or follow up on report of child having lice? Very irresponsible of this school.

My child just finished first grade at Anona. He has had wonderful teachers both years, and has really developed a love of learning. However, the new principal, Gaye Lively, does NOT impress. She is very corporate and not fun. She should be working in an office for an insurance company or something similar, not at an elementary school! I heard her complaining after a recent kindergarten orientation that not enough people came. Well, if there was ANY communication from the school about upcoming events, maybe people would come to them! Also, there is NO recess after K. What a shame for little kids to have to focus all day long. This is not the school's fault, but there is minimal parental involvement (I often felt that teachers didn't know what to do with me during my frequent volunteering). I so wanted to love this school, but some little issues plus the bad new principal have me looking elsewhere. Hopefully she will earn to respond to concerned parents and be more positive in the future so more good families don't leave.

I was a first grade teacher at Anona for three years. It is a wonderful school. The faculty, and families are amazing. I was truly blessed to have had the opportunity to start my teaching career at Anona.

Anona is a wonderful school and my teacher, Mrs. Eldred, gives me hope and joy whenever I suceed at anything. Mrs. Jordan (the principal) is so great and I feel warm whenever she says 'hi' or something. I have to say, though, that Mrs. Kendall, a Kindergarten teacher, was the best I've had so far! She has helped me in every way, and gone too far for me and I want to thatnk her in so many ways that you can't even imagine! I hope everyone at Anona is enjoying their time there, and is truly is a great school. -Demi, a student

Anona is the most wonderful school, with awesome teachers like Ms Taylor, and the new principal ms Jordan is so warm and inviting and helpful.They always have time for parents and always keep you up to date on your child's progress. Very interactive, my daughter loves this school more than any school she has ever been to, and we moved around quite a bit. She is now straight A student on Prinipal's List

This is a great elementary school. The teachers are absolutely great! Mr. Greg Walker was a great principal, and we were sad to hear that he left. My daughter loved this school, and didn't want to leave. The teachers helped everyone out; and were sure to challenge my daughter, for she was very bright. She is graduating Bay Point this year, and has gotten straight A's in the magnet program. The PTA is excellent, and parents are always involved. My daughter loved the music and art teachers; Mrs. Miles and Mrs. Hoblit. Also, she always enjoyed P.E., because they always had fun activies. Overall, this is one of the best schools in the county!

You won't regret sending your child to Anona. We have a daughter who is in 5th and has been there since K, and now we have a son in K. Its a small, very safe, family oriented elementary. They are an A rated school that offers the full range of student services. My daughter is in the gifted program. They have a very active PTA.

I love Anona! Anona is a small family oriented school. The teachers are very dedicated at Anona as well. Greg Walker the principal is very approachable and involved with the children. We love the music teacher....she has really encouraged the love of music in my child. I feel like Anona is a great start on a child's education. The relaxed feel paired with teachers who love their job is a wonderful thing. I give Anona an 'A'!

Anona is a wonderful school. My daughter started there in 4th grade after moving from Brooker Creek. The teachers take a family oriented approach and are very involved with parents as well as students. I highly recommend the school. My daughter loved her teachers and did not have any problems while she attend Anona. She will miss it as she goes on to middle school.

Throughout the years 1980 to present, I've sent five children through Anona Elementary. It has consistently remained an A+ school in my book. The teachers and principals (past/present) are dedicated to educating their students in a safe environment and the high degree of parental involvement really helps to bring it all together.

I love Anona School, and so does my daughter. We may be moving out of our choice area next year, and I am sad at the thought of settling for anywhere else!
